As regards the quorum figure – 

Please keep in mind that in RIR history most RIR’s average far less than 10%.

If the number is two high – there are implications for that – which I’m going 
to leave people to figure out for themselves.  But I will say this – beware of 
what you ask for – you may just get it – with all the unintended consequences.

I don’t have a problem with raising the quorum for voting – and I’m going to 
leave it to others to propose a number, but I will ask that you think very 
carefully before proposing a number as to the consequences of us not being able 
to get quorum.

Thanks

Andrew

    75% of the members who exercise their vote.

    Thanks.  There were some good ideas in your email, and I will work on 
converting some of them to bylaws changes for consideration.
    
    The current quorum requirement is 10 members, which is too small, but I 
think 10% is too large.
